Dr Graves did a knee replacement at Quitman Hosp. about 2 yrs ago. It went perfectly and has been a new lease on life. His office appts are always on time and he spends all the time needed to discuss any aspect of my care and rehab. I now am having a problem with my other knee and will use him for certain if another replacement is needed.

Dr. Graves is very attentive to details and gives you answers before you even ask the question. He did my husband's rotator cuff surgery and knee replacement. Both are doing great with no pain now! Definitely someone to count on!!

The doctor was a great person and good bedside manner. He listened and was attentive to my concerns and took the time to listen and evaluate me. Most doctors I feel rushed so they can get to the next patient, I did not feel that way with Dr. Graves.

Dr Graves explained the surgery beforehand and after surgery and therapy I was not that confident he had done a good job but after a year I found I could throw a ball or rock w my right arm without pain. I haven’t been able to do that in about 40 yrs so my confidence in Dr Graves is 100% now ! I highly recommend him.

Dr. Graves has always been so kind and very sensitive of patients predicament, aside from being brilliant and right on point. I thank the Almighty for him.
